Conference 

Miss Margaret Ball, Associate 
Professor in the Department of 
Political Science, will be a mem- 
ber of the International Se 
tariat of the San Francisco Con- 
ference, and is now on her way 
to San Francisco, where the con- 
ference will begin April 25. 

Although Miss Ball does not 
yet know the exact nature of her 
work, she will act as assistant 
secretary to one of the confer- 
ence committees, probably a legal 
committee. Miss Ball will work 
under the direction of Mr. Nor- 
man Padelford, consultant of the 
State Department, with whom she 
has done research on post-war 
administration. 

Miss Ball pointed out, however, 
that she will not have any part in 
determining the policy of the 
committee but will probably 
handle the documents, edit the 
notes of the stenographers, and 
have them printed in organized 
form for the use of the confer- 
ence delegates. 

Called by State Department 
After a phone call from the 
State Department Wednesday, 
April 11, Miss Ball obtained a 
leave from the college. She re- 
ported on Monday in Washington 
where she joined members of the 
State Department. Miss Ball ad- 
mitted that she was quite thrilled 
with the opportunity of associat- 
ing with the delegates of the 
governments of the 39 nations, 
obtaining first hand information 
concerning the decisions reached. 
When asked what effect Presi- 
dent Roosevelt's death will have 
on the outcome of the conference, 
Miss Ball replied, "The work of 
the conference will doubtless be 
more difficult, not because Mr. 
Roosevelt will not be present in 
person since in any case he would 
not have taken part in the actual 
decisions, but because of the ab- 
sence of his exceptionally capable 
guiding hand." 

Past Experience 
That Miss Ball is well equipped 
for her task is evident from her 
long background of study in the 
field of international relations. 
After obtaining her B.A. and 
M.A. from Stanford in 1981, she 
attended a seminar for interna- 
tional law teachers under the aus- 
pices of the Carnegie Endowment 
for International Peace, and lec-

To Speak Here 

Forum and the Political Scii 

in' nt will present Miss Mar- 
garet I young Bridgeport 
and Wellesley graduate, 
class of '35, who will speak on 
"Women in Politics," April 23 at 
4:40 p.m. in Pendleton Hall. Miss 
Connors was the Democratic op- 
ponent of Clare Boothe Luce 
ing the last election in Connecti- 
cut's Fourth Congressional Dis- 
trict. 

A History and Political Science 
major while at Wellesley, Miss 
Connors graduated with honors in 
ield of International Law. In 
1935 she entered the Yale Law 
School. After passing her bar ex- 
amination, she began to practice 
law and is now a member of the 
Bridgeport firm of Saltman, Weiss 
and Connors. 

In 1936 Miss Connors served 
as Special Investigator for the 
United States Department of Jus- 
tice. She also worked with the 
American Civil Liberties Union 
and as special assistant to the 
Attorney-General of Connecticut. 
From 1940 to 1942, Miss Con- 
nors was Deputy Secretary of the 
State of Connecticut. She was not 
only the first woman chosen for 
this office, but the youngest per- 
son ever to hold the position. 

Miss Connors is especially in- 
terested in labor law and is the 
counsel for many Bridgeport 
unions in compensation cases and 
civil liberties matters. During her 
campaign, she stressed the neces- 
sity for full post-war employment 
anil the further development of 
social progress. She also empha- 
sized the importance of an inter- 
national organization to preserve 
peace. 

Active at Wellesley 
Margaret Connors was not only 
awarded highest scholastic honors 
at Wellesley, but was also Presi- 
dent of her class. She still serves 
in the capacity of Alumna Presi- 
dent. 

In her Junior year at Wellesley 
Miss Connors toured the country 
with the Peace Caravan, sponsored 
by the American Friends Service 
Committee. She canvassed houses 
making speeches on international 
relations and peaceful methods of 
handling disputes. 

Miss Connors was also President 
of A. A. and won a Wellesley blazer 
for outstanding participation in 
swimming, basketball, hockey, soft- 
ball and tennis. At present, 
she holds the women's singles ten- 
nis championship at Bridgeport.

Bretton Woods Delegate 
Claims Trade Essential 



"We have reached the point 
where doing nothing is more risky 
than doing something," declared 
Dr. Mabel Newcomer, delegate to 
the United Nations Monetary Con- 
ference at Bretton Woods, in an 
address in Pendleton Hall Tues- 
day evening, April 17- "One of 
the first really definite things up 
for ad ion" is the Bretton Woods 
plan, and, in the interest of inter- 
national economic and political wel- 
fare, MlSS Newcomer believes we 
must adopt it. 

We will need export markets at 
the termination of Lend-Lease as 
much as Europe will need our 
goods; the reasons for our adopt- 
ing the plan are not all altruistic, 
Miss Newcomer emphasized. 

With old means of finance and 
trade virtually defunct, I 
the world must have

Ian— to get steady

the fund, said Miss Newcomer, are 
based on the fact that it would 
not operate according to ordinary 
banking principles. Countries' bor- 
rowing quotas would not be af- 
fected by the supposed reliability 
of their credit. But, she objected, 
we are dealing with sovereign na- 
tions, and who would decide the 
merits of their credit? 
Besides, she maintained, other safe- 
provided; and at any

not more than the cost of 10 days 
war, she pointed out .

would be an appropriate night for 

ation of hostilities bet B 
the i 1b i - of 1947 and 1948. On 
that night, they decided, they 
would return the 1947 banner to 
[ghtful owners with hopes that 
the Sophomores would react ID 
kind, and return their gavel, which 
had mysteriously disappeared the 

Carefully, they lifted the banner 
out from its hiding place in a ven- 
tilator on the third floor of Nor- 
umbega. Carefully they laid their 
plans for a triumphant march from 
Founders to the Chapel. In a body 
they marched, singing that 
had gathered "from the campus 
the hill around." and hearing 
the 1947 banner concealed behind 
a pseudo 1948 banner. 

Banner and Gavel Exchanged 
"1 hearby return your banner," 
said Nancy Bartram, president of 
1948. "And once again I present 
you with the gavel." Eesponded 
Hope Wilson, President of 1947, 
handing over a bunch of yellow 
(Sophomore class color) forsythia, 
in which the gavel was buried 

Bart stepped back, satisfied, but 
Hope had something more to say. 
"Perhaps you have wondered whv 
the Sophomores have not been 
more anxious about getting this 
banner back. Well." she 
is whv." She reached 
and one by one, tor* off the num- 
on the banner, displaying to 
the world at large and the fresh- 
men Class in particular, thai 
were only of paper. It « 
false banner! 

While the Freshm a, too 

to move at tin 
their failure, the Sophomores went 
into action. To the tune of "The 
Song of the Va they 

chanted several di 
marks, but ended on the note, "But

Beyond the Campus 



LIBE BOOKS 

iln letter dealing with the problem of miss- 
ing resei v, hook:- w inch appears in this week's 
Free Press column is one which warrants the 
• i- an. ntion ol every membei ol the stu- 
dent body. 

in decide that any copy oi a reserve book 
which <\<«^. not appear in its place has been 
deliberately removed from the library is to 
bake a distorted iriew of the ion. Yel 

11 is just as nearsighted to lay the blame to 
mere carelessness simply because we arc re- 
luctant in believe thai a Wellesley girl could 
bi guilty of Btealing. 

Certainly much of the difficulty con be traced 
i" carelessnes bul when a number of missing 
reserve books, theii bine tags carefully turned 
under, Buddenly appear on the library steps, we 
can scarcel) saj that thej had disappeared 
because of carelessnes Rather, it would seem 
|" be an example ol the most careful and de- 
lib" i ding on i in part of one or more 
students who hick the moral oonsciousn 
which we would have hoped was a part of 

every student's makeup. 

rheoretically it should not be necessary for 
a system of closed ioi monitors at each 

dooi to be instituted in the library. The as- 
sumption behind the regulations concerning 

i rve books is that every student will feel a 
i" rsonal moral responsibility to obey them, 
however desperately -he may need a particu- 
lar book. The library is doing everything pos- 
sible to cut down on the inconvenience.- i a used 
tO students when they are unable to locate 

books. Expenditure for duplicate copies this 

■i will run over $3000. An expert makes a sys- 

temalie -nirrh ol the library Iwire each .lav, and 

each member of the staff ha- a scheduled timi 
check the arrangement on the shelves and re- 
turn misplaced hook- i„ then proper place. 
Over 40 student assistants help in the correct 
shelving of books. 

Certainly the lib. a ff should U:,, , 

do 00 more. Il we accept the extraordinary 

privilege of being able to attend college at a 
time when so many ol oui contemporaries have 
been forced b< school, we musl also accepl 

bhe responsibility lor moral action which it

he began his Brst 
term of office in 1933, his whole 
energy was focused on relieving 
the poverty and misery of the 
Americans who were suffering 
from the most fatal business crisis 
in our history. Perhaps his most 
Btriking contribution was the 
buoyant faith that pulled the coun- 
try through those years of de- 
spair and the hard, discouraging 
years of the war to come later. 
He tohl us thai "the only thing 
we had to fear was fear itself" 
and he proceeded with amazing 
gth of purpose to move to 
counteract that fear. He tried to 
boost sagging, fearful price levels 
by emergency banklhg^controls, by 
changing the gold content of the 
dollar, and by launching a program 
of government "pump-priming" 
spending. He brought relief to the 
severely oppressed farmers with 
federal subsidies and with a law 
for the refinancing of farm mort- 
gages with federal aid. He gave 
a fairer chance in life to the un- 
employed youth of the nation 
through the Civilian Conservation 
Corps. The Tennessee Valley Au- 
thority stands as a shining me- 
morial to another phase of the 
President's New Deal. With the 
Securities and Exchange Act, the 
Social Security legislation, the 
National Labor Relations Board, 
the Wages and Hours law, and 
many other successful and some 
unsuccessful efforts he worked to 
strengthen and stabilize the econ- 
omy which had been shattered.

ond all these, however, the 
work of Franklin Roosevelt which 
is uppermost in the mind of every 
world citizen today is the job 
which he was not allowed to fin- 
ish. Mr. Roosevelt's foreign pol- 
icy has probably been the least 
criticized of all his policies. He 
began his crusade for internation- 
alism with the reciprocal trade 
treaties, and he has always acted 
as a citizen of the world rather 
than of the United States. 1 1 
has been his idealism, his diplo- 
macy, his perseverance and his 
dynamic personality which have 
engineered the meetings at Casa- 
blanca, Moscow, Quebec, Cairo, Te- 
ter, Quebec, Cairo, Teheran, and 
heran, and at Yalto and the proc- 
lamation at the Atlantic Char- 
ter. He sponsored the mo- 
mentous conferences at Hot 
Springs, Bretton Woods, Chicago 
and Dumbarton Oaks. The relent- 
less, liberal, democratic idealism 
of the President had struggled 
tirelessly for two hard years of 
expert diplomacy to achieve the 
dramatic climax of his labors, the 
conference at San Francisco, only 
two weeks off. The world could 
not afford to lose him. We are 
all. however, poignantly aware of 
bhe course he has set for us to 
follow. Mrs. Roosevelt, in the 
cable sent to her sons fighting 
abroad, expressed the wisdom that 
should blaze in the hearts and 
minds of all of us: '"He did his 
job to the end as he would want 
you to do." 



FHEE PRESS 



HONOR IN LIBRARY 

It is time that the library situ- 
ation be brought to notice again. 
Too frequently have reserve books 
required for larger classes been 
willfully stolen. This is not a 
new situation. In the spring of 
'44. C. G. threatened to close the 
stacks in order to insure students 
equal usage of the books. A mon- 
itoring system was installed to 
bring the matter to the students' 
attention. 

This year Wellesley has contin- 
ued its open stack policy, one of 
bhe few colleges to do so, and 
again some students have abused 
this privilege. In a Political Sci- 
ence course, four out of five pam- 
phlets, required reading for a quiz 
involving over a hundred students, 
were taken. The plan for a Comp. 
course, involving several sections. 
was changed because the books 
necessary were stolen. Bible books 
have been confiscated, and in 
other cases sections of the books 
•have been torn out! 

It is time that the students pro- 
tect their privileges by taking 
definite action. The courses of 
action before us are: 

(1) Closed stacks 

(2) A monitoring system 

(3) Closer adherence to the 
Honor System 

Of the three ways open to us, 
the first two signify admission of 
our inability to accept individual 
and collective responsibility. The 
monitoring system, tried last 
spring, was ineffective and dis- 
tasteful. The Honor system, in 
application to the library, 
seems to have failed. It is known 
that books have been taken and 
are circulating in the dormitories 
among a "privileged few." The 
responsibility for the return of 
books rests with every student. 
Regardless of personal feelings, 



we must not be afraid to admon- 
ish the "few" in order to insure 
our common interests.

WELLESLEY DIET 

To the Free Press: 

As recent Free Press letters 
have brought the question of 
feeding the College more or less 
into the limelight, this seems an 
appropriate time to discuss a 
little further the relationship of 
food to the College program as a 
whole. Here we have a commun- 

In all academic and most ad- 
ministrative functions, one sees 
definite interest exhibited by the 
student body, this interest taking 
the form of committees on edu- 
cational policies and academic 
standards, student government 
house rules, conduct rules, etc. 
Through all this one clearly dis- 
cerns an honest desire on the part 
of the student to satisfy herself 
that the College chosen is best 
fitted to prepare her mind for life 
after graduation. 

Well, how about body? As 
supposedly mature students, how- 
much do you really know about 
the care you are giving your body 
during the four strenuous and de- 
manding years spent at College? 
analyze your daily program in re- 
lation to your body needs? Do you 
acknowledge honestly your need of 
seven to eight hours sleep and 
three square meals (not snacks) 
a day? As a member of a self- 
real Iy know what calories are, 
and do you think an ice cream 
cone at 11 a.m. is only an appe- 
tizer? Do you realize you can 
always have an egg for break- 
fast and. five glasses of milk a 
day. and do you take advantage 
of this? Have you ever sought

Cigarettes, Radio Tubes Vandermeuien 
Reward Wellesley "Rays" Win Discuss 



"And the biggest advantages/' 
in w. ii Raytheon War 

" said Jean Stadeker, '46, 
bat you get a cigarette ra- 
tion card!" She leaned hack among 
numerous cigarettes and radio 
tubes in her Shafer room think- 
ing of her extra-curricular life at 
Raytheon in Waltham. 

About six weeks ago, inspired 
by such poignant radio messages 
(familiar to all those followers of 
the "9:20 club"), as "Housewives 
do your bit on the assembly line 
at Raytheon," Ginny Booze '46, 
Sally Ramsey '46, and Jean Stade- 
ker '46, applied at the plant. After 
numerous psychological and im di- 
ligence tests to make sure that 
square pegs were not put in round 
holes, the potential workers filled 
out blanks denying any hallucina- 
tions on disorders, and passed an 
extensive physical examination. 
Finally they became part of the 
Raytheon packing department for 
two afternoons each week. 

"We pack radio tubes on the two 
to nine shift, working in the belt, 
stapling, running around gener- 
ally," Jean said. She went on to 
speak about the cafeteria filled 
with delicious food, about the wild 
high school boys on their shift, 
and about the forewoman who acts 
as a mother to them. "Really, 
though, we're the only Wellesley 
"Rays," and Raytheon is pretty 
desperate for help. The foreman 
is just begging us to stay around 
Boston this summer, and to get 
more recruits." 

Jazz for Variety 

To speed up production jazz is 
played every half hour. Just re- 
cently the plant installed a new- 
air-conditioning system, so noisy 
that it is virtually impossible to 
speak to anyone. According to Jean 
it wouldn't do any good to talk 
to your neighbor anyway as you 
probably couldn't understand him, 
but then, maybe she isn't used 
to a Boston accent. 

In the annex across the river 
Wellesley "Rays" find the work 
fairly even and unexciting. The 
radio tubes go both for civilian 
and army use, and are quite easy 
to pack. On the other hand, Brit- 
ish tubes are complicated affairs 

Van Alen Will Discuss 
Summer Work as Part 
Of War Reconstruction 

"Summer Jobs and Reconstruc- 
tion Work" will be discussed to- 
morrow afternoon at 4:00 at Agora 
by Miss Jeannette Van Alen, New 
England Representative of the 
American Friends Service Com- 
mittee. The lecture will demon- 
strate the practicability of work- 
ing this summer at a job which 
will he useful in reconstruction 
work later. 

Mr. Ralph Williams, a member 
of the Student-Faculty Committee 
on Summer Jobs, urges each stu- 
dent interested in doing recon- 
struction work to attend the lec- 
ture. "Miss Van Alen will show 
how a little imagination can make 
summer work lead to worthwhile 
reconstruction work," he stated. 
She will have specific jobs to offer, 
in Mexico, for instance, for those 
who plan to work in tropical areas. 
There will also be non-paying jobs 
with the American Friends. 

The lecture is sponsored by 
Christian Association and the Wel- 
lesley Meeting of the Society of 
Friends.

Time Off For . . 

Movies 

"The Suspect" is a psychologi- 
cal murder drama which is excel- 
lently acted and directed, in spite 
of a faulty plot. It concerns a 
mild British gentleman, Philip 
Marshall, played by Charles 
Laughton, who is tortured by his 
naggii until he is driven to 

kill her as well as a neighbor who 
tries to blackmail him. The em- 
phasis is on the portrayal of 
hall's character; he is clearly 
not a weak "hen-peeked husband." 
but merely of a quieter tempera- 
ment than his wife. As a solace 
for his domestic wrangling, 
Marshall n tic at- 

tachment with young Mary Grey, 
played by Ella Raines, and the 
two soon" fall in love. When his 
Cora refuses to grant him a 
d'.vorc- Hai jhall di perately con- 
and carries out the idea of 

murdering her. Later he kills his 

hbor Simmons also, and is 
aboui to sail for Canada with his 

new Wife Mary, wln-n a detective 
who has had him under suspicion 
for some time casually tells him 
that Mrs. Simmons is certain to 
be convicted of her husbands' mur- 
der. Marshall's consequent choice 
of action completes his character- 
ization. 

Plot Defective 

The one great inconsistency of 
the story is that Huxley, the de- 
tective, guessed the time facts of 
Mrs. Marshall's death within two 
or three days afterward, and upon 
practically no evidence. Marshall 
was a respectable citizen, and even 
though his wife's quarrelsome dis- 
position was well known, there 
was no real basis for suspecting 
Marshall's account that she had 
tripped on the stairs. Yet upon 
this purely speculative theory of 
the detective, the whole denoue- 
ment of the film depends. 

After one has accepted the fact 
that, no matter how, Huxley has 
guessed the truth, it is thrilling 
to watch the way he observes 
Marshall, setting endless traps 
which the latter avoids with the 
self possession of a hardened 
criminal or the guilelessness of an 
innocent man. Laughton is a well 
known master iji the art of creat- 
ing suspense; one wonders whether 
the bland, unobstrusive exterior 
of Philip Marshall really hides a 
desperate murderer underneath. 
The actual script and photography 
also provides suspense, as when 
Marshall conceals Simmons' body 
under a sofa, and the shots of 
someone walking through the fog 
add atmosphere. The scenes are 
sometimes melodramatic in the at- 
tempt to give suspense, but us- 
ually this tendency is avoided.

Piano Recital 
Shows Students' 
Ability, Poise 

Piano students gave a highly 
mg concert in Billings Hall. 
Sunday afternoon, April 15. 

We are grateful to Mr. Barnett 
for the care with which he se- 
lects his student programs, as 
well as for his excellent results 
as a teacher. He succeeded Sun- 
day, for instance, in presenting 
a well-balanced program, consist- 
ing of music from classical, ro- 
mantic, and modern periods in 
chronological sequence. This is 
no small achievement, considering 
that fifteen pupils, of varying 
levels of proficiency and maturity, 
took part. 

One of the highlights of the 
occasion was the playing of two 
movements from Mendelssohn's 
Conct rto in G minor, by Mar- 
garet French '46, and Margaret 
Peters '45. The latter played the 
solo part of the first movement, 
and vice versa for the second 
movement. The excellent team- 
work of the two pianists was im- 
pressive. The facile technique of 
the first movement, and the beau- 
tifully sustained melodic line in 
the second were even more re- 
able. Miss Peters p] 
with particular ease an,] e 
sion which lent real pathos to the 
A nil" 

Another high point was reached 
by Barbara Dunlap '45, in her 
interpretation of Debussy's La 
to del Vino. Her 'mature 
understanding of this vigorous 
music was coupled with a pol- 
ished finish of performance which 
made the piece delitrhtful. A dif- 
ferent style of Debussy was ap- 
parent in Les sons et let poi 
which Jean Beaverson '47 played. 
She accomplished the gossamer- 
like touch of the impressionistic 
style extremely well. 

Highly developed skill and poise 

(Continm -d on Page 6, Col. B) 

The actijig on the whole is very 
good, although Ella Raines gives 
a rather stereotyped performance. 
Cora's role is small but unfor- 
gettable; one can easily see how 
her disagreeableness would lead a 
man to murder, yet it is shown 
with perfect naturalness. Mrs. 
Simmons is extremely symp 
thetically portrayed as a woman 
made unhappy by a worthless hus- 
band, yet strong enough to main- 
tain face before the world. As 
usual Laughton is very successful 
in conveying hvs characterization 
of the man who, in a situation 
very similar to that of Mrs. Sim- 
mons, does stoop to murder. 

In spite of occasional discrep- 
ancies in the script, "The Sus- 
pect" maintains interest by the 
developing psychology of the mur- 
derer and by the exciting situa- 
tions his pursuit evokes.

information on what are suffi- 
cient daily food requirements? Do 
you appreciate the fact that fond 
is the major problem in the 
Id today and that you are a 
part of a small minority group 
privileged to maintain healthy 
bodies and later bring normal 
children into the world? 

Should not all these questions 
be a part of your thinking as a 
student, not resulting in remarks 
h as "How about more cake 
with tea" or "Do we have to eat 
but rather taking the con- 
crete form of a committee work- 
ing toward the maintaining of 
good health standards throughout 
the College. One of the functions 
of this committee could be an in- 
telligent study of menus used on 
the campus and the relationship 
of these menus to the body needs. 
The committee could at appointed 
discuss campus feeding with 
the Head Dietitian, and in turn 
interpret these discussions to the 
student body. 

In last week's Neivs, Miss 
Johnstin of the Chemistry De- 
partment gave an excellent study 
of the situation in scientific 
terms. Thinking in terms of how 
a future committee might work 
and at the same time desiring to 
bring recent menus to the atten- 
tion of the students, I studied 
March menus and find the follow- 
ing food was served on the camp- 
us during the month:

string beans, five times; frozen 
broccoli, five times; fresh spinach,

Such a study of campus menus 
might be an interesting part of 
the committee's work. It has also 
occurred to me that we might in- 
terest the student group in food 
values by the use of colorful and 
descriptive posters. This week, as 
an experiment along this line, 
there will be on display on the 
bulletin board in Founders a post-

it to your attention and study,

Is the interest in the general

carry on from here ?
